The Walking Dead cast remembers superfan who died of cancer
The Walking Dead is honoring a fallen member of its extended fan family this week. Lisa Williams, a regular at conventions and other events around the show, died Tuesday after battling cancer.
“We’re deeply saddened to learn about the passing of Lisa Williams, who was one of the most passionate people (and #TWD fans) you could meet,” reads a post on the official Walking Dead Twitter account. “The outpouring of love that’s coming with this news goes to show how much of an impact she had on #TWDFamily. You will be missed…”
Stars Norman Reedus and Jeffrey Dean Morgan also shared their memories with Williams.
“Gonna miss u Lisa. You were always so cool and always had a smile for everyone,” Reedus wrote.
“Real blessed that we get to meet a lot of great and special people…. Lisa always stood out as one of the best. She will be missed by all of us that were lucky enough to know her. Xxxjd”
The two stars created a video for Lisa in mid-March, wishing her well and hoping they’d see her soon.
EW’s own Dalton Ross also shared his memories of Williams, which included her winning a fan contest to interview the Walking Dead cast.
